Qualicum Beach Residents Association to hold candidate forum

Local community group holds a forum during each municipal election

When the Qualicum Beach Residents Association holds their all candidates forum, area residents can expect a tried and true formula, says organizer Doug Taylor.

The QBRA, Taylor said, holds an all candidates forum every time there is an election. Moderator David Roach takes to the podium at 7 p.m. on Tues., Nov. 1 at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre. The forum, Taylor said, is for all candidates for both mayor and council positions.

“They will have five minutes each, with a warning system. Once they are through their original presentations, we will open the floor to questions from the audience.”

Unlike some other forums, Taylor said there will be no written questions, only live questions from the microphone.

“The moderator will tell people to get directly to their question,” he said.
